    Hi All,

    I was wondering if there is any such device that would allow me to control my orb.com stream via my ipod touch. Basically i want to watch streaming tv on my television via TV out and mycast.orb.com, but be able to say change the channel with the ipod touch, so the ipod would effectively have to relay with my PC, I do not want to watch the television directly on my ipot, just change channels. Is there any such application to do a task like this in existence?

    Cheers

    I dont know of a way of controlling this easy, but maybe you could look at something else?
    I dont know anything about IntenetTV thanx to being a dialup user...but its just stream stuff isnt it?
    Could VLC work for you instead?...it plays streams, you can make a playlist of streams, and you can get an OK web interface for it here....

    ...nah, what eva....You can stream movies that the iTouch can play from the computer to the iTouch using a web server. Try Abyss and use the Directory Listing option, I dont have any good example of code to use tho. I made some up, but it can actually crash the iTouch to the point of having to restart and that takes a bit of time (it was scary

    herbal, yes. will VNC, but the frames per second arent fast enough to catch up with the video, so it lags
